Dude, hate to tell ya, but there is no movie to watch and no files to download, and therefore no nekkid boobies. you might want to see about correcting that, because I really don't care to have my filth this clean.

Wacky film, but I (kinda) love it! Supposedly it was written by Ed Wood, but that may or may not be true.

In the ROTV cast is the late actor Del Monroe, who played Kowalski on the TV series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, and was also in Filmgroup's The Girl in Lover's Lane.

Also, the music score by Guenther "Gene" Kauer may sound familiar to b-fans, as it was used in another of the films he scored, either Astounding She-Monster, Beast of Yucca Flats, Cape Canaveral Monsters, The Atomic Brain, and/or something else which escapes me at the moment. I like his music, but it all runs together in my aging memories.

This must be a b-movie day, as I've been watching Bruno VeSota's Brain Eaters this afternoon...sci-fi film noir!

I watched The Brain Eaters a couple of weeks ago. Fun film, considering what must have been a tiny budget. I never thought of it as noir while I watched it, though. Looking forward to Revenge of the Virgins, when it posts.

If not, it's about as close to noir as a sci-fi film can get. That, Not of this Earth, and a few others would probably qualify. I guess it depends upon what we (subjectively) consider to be noir (lots of DVDs released in recent years as "film noir" aren't, by most accounts, and were given that tag just to cash in on a surge in public interest), but Brain Eaters is certainly a very dark and nihilistic film. Bruno did okay I think, with only $18,000 or thereabouts.

Robert Heinlein sued the producers of "The Brain Eaters" for ripping off his novel, "The Puppet Masters". Guess he couldn't sue the writer, Gordon Urquart, because he died before the film came out.

Leonard Nimoy was in it, wasn't he? And wasn't he also in the serial "Zombies of the Stratosphere"?

Yeah, but the only way to recognize Nimoy in Brain Eaters is by his voice. He was a lot easier to recognize in Zombies of the Stratosphere.

I am not offended by nekkid boobies and all I see (24 hours after the upload) is an MPEG2 file that opens a new blank white page, but never loads.

There is no streaming click and play on-screen version on the info page.

Don't know what to tell you, kareneliot. The page says it's been downloaded 107 times, but I can't get it to work, either! Maybe I'm too much of a computard for this. Could somebody who DID download it please upload it again?

I've downloaded the MPEG2. It plays fine in VLC, and I can confirm that the chesticular region of healthy young women is visible at times. However, the video quality is low, with compression artifacts making for poor viewing in an area much larger than the 478x359 file resolution. I don't see much to gain by transcoding and re-uploading the movie.

The encoder that's used to make derivatives isn't what I or others would call robust. It's quite touchy really, and will produce derivatives that are out of sync, or won't produce derivatives at all if your uploaded file isn't just so. The container format of your uploaded file (MPEG2 video/AC3 audio) is nonstandard for MPEG2-PS, which may explain why the encoder didn't make derivatives. It's really hard to say for sure. The encoder is as mysterious, and unpredictable as other workings of IA. I can say that IA's encoder will often produce good derivatives from AVI files, though it isn't a format that IA says it supports. Screwy stuff.

I can't tell you why the film, at last check, had no derived files or wasn't embedded. Every time I upload something, after a few hours there's derived files, thumbnails, a running time, and you can stream it here on site, and I never had to do a thing. I don't think it was anything you did on your end that was wrong. There is at least one file that is downloadable, so at least you succeeded in making it available.
